Surfer Boys

Author Neil Plakcy edits a collection of stories all about hot action in the surf--and on the shore--titled Surfer Boys.

From impromptu foursomes on lonely beaches to heated competition on the surfer circuit, these stories catch waves an throw off sparks.

Some stories are simple and straightforward: hot surfer boy meets hot surfer boy; wild sex ensues.

Others adopt a wider field of view, with lust and love (of the waves, of one another) mingling into a whole. The characters in these pages are fully fleshed (in every way), and Plakcy himself offers a contribution in which jealousy and bondage play a role, while other fantasies find their way into the pages. The surf genre, as it turns out, is flexible.

A pack of surf punks protect their isolated beach from intruders in one tale; in another, an American in Australia gets a lesson beneath the Southern Cross he won't soon forget.

With summer here, "Surfer Boys" is essential beach reading.
